This one has been haunting me for decades. First heard it on Suspense, Inner Sanctum or another show from perhaps 1944-46 when it spooked a young boy.

The most obvious clue is that a female voice several times keens, "Greentree boy, greentree boy." The boy may be a baseball player, the female an ondine, witch or other supernatural.

The show was on at night, late for me, I remember listening to it in a darkened room. A weekday night, as I remember, though it could have been Saturday night. I understand that in 1945 both Suspense and Inner Sanctum were on weekday nights.

I have been searching OTR for a long time. Of course memory may be misleading on several details--though not on the Greentree boy refrain. I would greatly appreciate someone helping me end the search.

Now you have me being haunted by this. It sounds so damn familiar but I can't quite place it. I'll keep digging until I figure something out
